Problematic behavior

For many years at the Meiji Osaka FactoryEmployment Security ActIt was revealed in 2020 that a part-time job suspected of violating was being selected for hiring.[39][40] [41]

At the Osaka factory, we asked part-time job applicants about their weight, waist, and medical history.This was suspected of violating the Employment Security Act, which prohibits the collection of personal information not directly related to business, and in December 2020, he received administrative guidance as having a problem.The Meiji era insisted that it was "necessary to make work clothes" to media interviews, but on the other hand, after administrative guidance, these acts were abolished.This matter was reported on January 12, 2021 at the latest, but as of January 1, 5, there is no mention of this matter on the official website of the Meiji era.[42][43]
